Enjoy a lovely glass of wine and some regional specialities in a cosy traditional or modern wine bar in Koblenz, Mainz, Speyer or Trier.

Enjoying wine in the Romantic Cities:

Wine is a joy and a part of our cultural heritage

The region around the Romantic Cities offers plenty of opportunities to try excellent wines – from the steep rocky vineyards on the Ahr, Moselle, Nahe and Rhine to the sweeping rows of vines in the Palatinate and Rhenish Hesse. Even the Romans cultivated grapes in the wine-growing regions of Rhineland‑Palatinate. Today, a new generation of young vintners are producing premium wines with passion and innovative ideas. There is no shortage of places to try these wines, including cosy wine bars and pubs, top-notch wineries, the estates themselves and among friends at one of the numerous wine festivals.
